So much attention LFS got, nice, very nice. Yes, its good to remind young generation of this masterpiece.
Tbh, even if youtubers start covering LFS, the community won't grow any bigger.
The issue is that people want material, and with development this stagnant, you won't see new customers.
What if you were to buy LFS, and someone told you the VW Scirocco was announced 9 years ago, and it was never delivered?
Would you spend 36£, or even 24£, when you have alternatives like Assetto Corsa?
Obviously not.

Thanks but the development isn't stagnant. In fact LFS is undergoing a major graphical overhaul at the moment.

If development was stagnant it's really unlikely it would still be going after 15 years. Most other games have come and gone long before 15 years have passed.

What you mean by stagnant is "not as fast as you would like". So better say that instead. We're working very hard on the updates.

Please can we just stick to the point of the thread?

Thanks for this comment and in fact some sort of mini update on what's going on behind the scenes.
LFS still is a great game and will be around for a long time to come, no matter what others will keep saying about it.
I still enjoy the ride and all the possibilities LFS offers me, so thanks for all the hard work Scawen, Eric and Victor.

while everyone is entitled to an opinion that works both ways, now looking at your stats i would reckon that no matter how often the updates you would not be happy or drive, you have drove little to no laps on most variations of car or track. Even without a tyre update lfs has plenty to offer that you have not given a chance
Before any more answers:

Best Gaming Tech 2018 and the sim used for demonstrate is... LFS (at 3:00)
Over a Year since the last News so...
What/When comes next?

I love this news but there is a problem Scawen Frown
there are many players if not much of them of LFS that are playing of average computer, for example until my case, game 50-80 fps and if there are those graphs and that there is not that one that could be like LFS is now I will not be able to able to play it.
And I know cases that are worse than me and who reach 50 fps in the minimum Frown

If you have any English errors, I'm sorry, I'm not very good Tongue

Don't worry, I'm sure the devs are doing everything to ensure compatibility and great performance on older systems as well - as optimization has always been a priority. Also, it never hurts to take a step forward in terms of graphics, or anything else. Smile

EDIT: oh and as Scawen said, please stick to the topic, this is a thread for LFS in the news.

Sooner or later LFS will be updated with better, high res tracks, cars and graphics, so its something you won't be able to avoid.

Luckily Scawen and Eric does optimize the tracks (and graphics/shaders) really well.

read the forum please, this topic is not designed for this type of questions.

Yes it is true, an important thing to have in LFS was more varied of classes and clues also correct some things.
For example you would like to see a RB4 in GTR version, to be able to choose, for example, the traction of the cars we want in them (for example, XRT with 4x4 in pits) to be able to pick up a Turbo for example and to use race tires as a GTR and use in the car (as it is done in the tweak but in the LFS itself), to be able to choose tires from the pits that we want to get out of the pits to the track (as in counter mode), duration correction of tire changes in pits and if you go to pits give too much time just to change tires and that makes all the difference in a race)

Another more important thing would be track scratching, in which either competition would be a real difficulty, are many of the issues that make a difference in SimRacing simulator Smile

Well, we can not forget that Rally communities (Rally even non-rallycross) already grow up in the LFS, perhaps more so than race itself.

I at least as big in love with LFS and SimRacing I think this would be important to also have in LFS Smile

This was really good for all LiveForSpeed players !!!
The less weigh a simulator as the LiveForSpeed is better, because in my openião LFS is a complete simulator and there is no better !!
Just need a little news and something different, for example why not bet on the communities of Rally's? try to renew rest of the clues as happened with blackwood Smile?
Imagine the city circuit as Blackwood circuit, it was real success !!! Big grin
Sigh
Been loyal to lfs since 2007. Even bought a 2nd license to support the devs. But soon 1.5 years since last update just doesnt cut it. One of my favourite sims physics wise, but the lack of content digs the games grave. Rip LFS. It was fun while it lasted.

Ty to scawen and the team for the great times and a great sim. Was a big part of my youth Smile
Cheers, just make sure you're signed up to the newsletter because we are working on such a massive update as discussed on other threads. Obviously we'll send an email when it's ready. Smile
If this is the case il withdraw my rip and change it in to a thank you very much Smile

I like the term : "such a massive update" Petals Cool

Oh you tease!!! Even such small things like this are nice to read, Scawen!

I told you

EDIT: Big grin Tongue ( lolz )

EDIT2: Sorry about Off Topic, was not rly purpose but could not resist that, especially when had discussion about LFS in generally, BY ME AND THE Flick ( Bombs not loaded )
Quote from Flotch :back refreshing the mailbox

I am still working on graphics code (mainly optimisations at the moment) and need to get onto the tyre physics code and then the packet encryption. Eric still has more tracks to update. So it's still quite some time yet.
Are there any previews available yet? Like pics of the new updated tracks, and graphics improvements.
I don't expect we will do that until nearer the time when we have some idea of when it will be ready. Otherwise we will be heavily attacked for hype and it will not be fun at all. I know that most people don't do this but some do and then there is bad feeling and it all gets ugly and demoralising. At the moment we are working very hard and that is the main thing.

EDIT: If you'd like to imagine what it looks like, it's the same LFS but with better lighting, shadows and nice subtle shine effects and updated textures on the roads and many other surfaces. Eric can now add specular effects and he is making good use of that.
